The Center for Human Phenomic Science (CHPS) will soon be accepting research proposals to be considered for the Junior Investigator Preliminary/Feasibility Grant Program (JIPGP).

The awards are designed to allow junior faculty members and M.D., Ph.D. or D.M.D post-doctoral trainees with appropriate mentors to obtain funds for pilot projects that are investigator-initiated, human-based, CHPS studies that will enable an applicant to obtain preliminary data.
The grants will be available at each institution effective June 1, 2019.
